On March 25th 2013, Dr. Lynne Young gave an inspiring talk at UdeM Faculté de Sciences Infrimières where she encouraged the participants to think about the nature of interventions in nursing education that should be developed, tested, and evaluated. What type of educational interventions do we want to investigate in order to build a body of knowledge in nursing science? Dr Young is well known for her interest in developing a learning environment centered on the learner.
The presentation was followed by a workshop in the afternoon, aiming at exchanging ideas between Dr. Young, researchers, students, and anyone interested in developing and testing knowledge in nursing education. It included topics such as the issue of curriculum based on best practice and good results, but also any other issue or question related to the theme and submitted prior to the event by the participants.
